This summer at the Indiana State Fair, fair attendees can visit Amazing Maize, an educational exhibit about corn and why it’s important to our state, nation and world.
Amazing Maize will be housed in the Harvest Building (formerly the Food Pavilion) at the Indiana State Fairgrounds and open to fair attendees during the duration of the fair, Aug. 17-23. The exhibition is presented by ICMC with national support from Dow AgroSciences LLC and the Ford Motor Company.
ICMC was a local presenting sponsor of the original Amazing Maize exhibit that premiered in 2011 at the Indiana State Museum. In 2014, the museum debuted a smaller, traveling exhibit that is touring the state, including a stop at the fair Aug. 7-23.
“Indiana corn farmers are excited to see the Indiana State Museum take the Amazing Maize exhibit on the road so a whole new crop of Hoosiers will be able to see the story of corn and the integral role it has played in not only our rural communities, but our state as a whole,” says ICMC President Dennis Maple. “Those who visit this exhibit will never think of a field of corn as 'ordinary' again. Instead, they will see the plant for what it truly is — the result of an extraordinary story about humankind and its ingenuity.”
